Side pull brake
Riders may not have reacted to this kind of brakes, but we only need to observe low-end folding bikes, commuter bikes, princess cars, etc., and we will find that the front brakes are generally equipped with this kind of brakes. Call it a clamp brake. The advantage is that the price is low, but the quality of low-end products is average. Of course, a good horse is equipped with a good saddle, and low-end bicycles do not need to be equipped with high-end brakes. Therefore, side pull brakes also have high-end products. The advantage is simple and powerful, and there is a quick-release device for loading and unloading wheels.
V-brake is the standard configuration of Earth-calculated mountain bikes and many commuter bikes. Of course, although it is used on low-end mountain bikes, this does not mean that V-brake is useless. It also has high-end products. The advantage is that it is light in weight and can be compatible with a wide tire. As long as it is installed correctly, the braking force is very strong. High-end products also have balance weights, so that the relative angle of the brake shoes and the rim will not change.
Disc brakes first appeared on mountain bikes. The advantage is that they have strong and efficient brakes and are not affected by the deformation and bending of the rim. With this feature, bicycle manufacturers now basically assemble disc brakes on our commonly used bicycle types. There are two types of disc brakes. One is a mechanical disc brake, which is braked by pulling a steel wire, and the other is an oil disc, which brakes by compressing the mineral oil in the oil pipe.
